ISLAMABAD: Chief US diplomat for South Asian affairs, Alice Wells, arrived in Islamabad on Sunday for a four-day visit to Pakistan centered around talks on bilateral issues.
She has reached Pakistan after wrapping up her tour of India and Sri Lanka.
Wells is expected to meet representatives from Pakistan’s political and military leadership to talk about several issues, including Pak-US ties, the Afghan reconciliation process, ongoing tensions in the region and Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
She will also speak at a think tank and engage with members of civil society on what the US State Department calls “issues of bilateral and regional concern”.
Although Wells’ visit comes immediately after Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s trip to Washington, her trip had been planned prior.
